Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert won song of the year at the Country Music Association Awards in Nashville Thursday night. A shock even amongst a series of surprising and off-script turns of events, the win brought a warmly welcomed and tender moment to the CMA awards.

In one of the Country Music Association Awards' most emotional moments in recent memory, husband and wife stars Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert won song of the year Thursday night.

As Lambert openly wept on stage, Shelton recounted for the television audience how the loss of his older brother, Richie, and father, Dick, spurred the couple to write the song.

"My dad always told me, `Son, you should write a song about your brother,"' Shelton said. "I lost my dad in January, and it's so amazing to me that tonight even after he's gone, he's still right. I just needed the right person to write this song with and the right person to sing it."
